What you can do with the Call Menu

Department & Team Options

Give your callers more choices

Menu options (also known as single-digit extensions) are a great way to send callers to specific departments such as sales, support, billing & more. Don’t have departments? No problem! You can also configure options to route calls directly to your team members.

Department & team options can be configured to ring all of your phones & desktop users. You may set dates & times to route calls & choose whether to ring your phones at the same time or in a specific order.


Multi-level menu system

The call menu provides you with up to ten menu options. However there may be instances where you need more menu options & that’s where submenus can help.

Submenus give you the ability to add multiple levels of menu options to your call menu. For example, if you wish to provide callers with separate menus for different languages or based on a certain location, submenus would be the perfect solution.

Submenus can be added to the call menu, extensions, & even as an after hours destinations.

Automated Messages

Give your callers access to important information

Provide your callers with menu options that play automated messages. Now your callers can gain access to important information such as your business’s hours of operation without needing to speak to your team.

Upload or record your custom messages right from your online account.

Once the automated message finishes playing you may route callers back to the call menu, a submenu, phone number, user, or voice mailbox.

Voicemail Made Simple

Check voicemail by email, browser, & apps

Never miss a voicemail — Enable email, mobile, & desktop app notifications when receiving a new voice message.

Customize your voicemail greetings & assign separate mailboxes to your team members, departments, & phone numbers.

Our mailboxes can be added or removed at anytime & provide unlimited storage capacity.

Dial-by-Name Directories

Connect callers to your team

Create dial-by-name directories that give your callers the ability to connect with the right team member.

Do you have multiple team members with the same first or last name? No problem, you can add a submenu to your directory & give your callers the opportunity to choose the team member they wish to reach.

You can even create list directories that provide callers with numerous options to choose from based on the 3 or 4 digit extension they enter.
